Yuri is no String of Pearls virgin; she's been there before, when she brought her sensuality, child-like spirit and talent for talking really, really quickly to the characters she portrayed on stage in last year's show. Still, having done it before doesn't mean she won't be bringing something fresh to her work for this summer's revival, in which she plays four different characters. Yuri has this to say about the women (or girls) she plays:
"I feel like I relate to Randy the most because I like hot cops.
Zoe is the most fun for me to play because who doesn't want to be able to throw a temper tantrum on stage?
Victoria has challenged me the most because she has lot of complexity and depth for such a shallow-seeming character."
There you have it folks! Satisfy your intrigue and come see what Yuri is talking about when you settle in for a night of entertainment and perhaps even a glass of wine, poured from Antiquite Maison's in-house winery!
